The 2025 Toyota Crown Signia is set to make its mark as a conventional, mid-size SUV with ambitious fuel efficiency goals, a fitting choice for those unimpressed by the high-riding sedan style of Toyota Crown’s initial US launch. Slated to replace the Venza after its 2024 model year, the Crown Signia is not just a replacement but an upgrade, enhancing many of the Venza’s strong points.
Although it’s not entirely a surprise, thanks to Toyota’s early teasers, the arrival of the Crown Signia is still a notable event. It boasts a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine combined with three electric motors – two in the front and one in the back – delivering 243 horsepower, surpassing the Venza’s output by 24 hp. Standard features include all-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Despite CVTs not being renowned for towing capabilities, the Crown Signia notably improves in this area, able to tow up to 2700 pounds, a significant step up from the Venza, which had no towing capacity.
